The Brunswick County Power Station in Virginia was recently named “Project of the Year” by Power Engineering magazine.
The 1,358-megawatt station was designed and built by Irving, Texas-based Fluor Corp. and was also recognized as the 2016 Natural Gas-Fired Project of the Year during the keynote address at the Power-Gen International conference and exhibition in Orlando, Fla.
“We are proud that the Brunswick County Power Station has been recognized with this respected industry award,” said Wolfgang Greinke, vice president of Fluor’s power business, in a news release announcing the awards.
The station was designed and built for Dominion Virginia Power — a subsidiary of Dominion Resources — and began commercial operations in April 2016. Fluor provided engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services for the facility.
According to the release, Fluor had as many as 1,500 construction crew that installed more than 38,000-cubic-yards of concrete, 142,000-linear-feet of pipe and 420 miles of cable. Fluor Corp. officials said the project was completed ahead of schedule.
Fluor Corp. designs, builds and maintains facilities for clients on six continents. The company has an office in Greenville.
